Another Italian free kick. Pirlo out on the left, wastes it. He’s having a very poor game by his standards. A lot of pushing in the box, but nothing to whistle about.

Balotelli comes back to collect in his own half, and handballs. Spain on the attack. Fabregas loses the ball, Italy clear out to the left, and now we see Balotelli — who appears to be playing on the left of midfield now, trying to plug the gaps in the undermanned Italian formation.

The Israeli commentators are feeling sorry for him, that’s how bad things are. Poor fellow, says one, as the camera shows him meandering, head down, on the left side of the field. Well, the first half was better, says the other. Hardly.
